Detachable key blade

Updated 7/23/2018

The remote control key contains a detachable key blade of metal with which a number of functions can be activated and some operations carried out.

The key blade's unique code is provided by authorised Volvo workshops, which are recommended when ordering new key blades.

The key blade's application areas

Using the remote control key's detachable key blade:

  • the left-hand

    This applies whether the car is left-hand drive or right-hand drive.

    front door can be opened manually if central locking cannot be activated with the remote control key.
  • all doors are emergency locked - see the section "Locking/unlocking with detachable key blade".
  • the rear doors' mechanical child safety locks can be activated/deactivated - see the section "Child safety locks".

The button-less keySupplied with cars equipped with the keyless locking/unlocking option (Passive Entry*). (Key Tag) does not have a detachable key blade. If necessary, use the detachable key blade from the normal remote control key.

Detaching the key blade

Hold the remote control key with the front visible and the Volvo logo facing the right way - slide the button at bottom edge by the key ring to the right. Guide the front side's shell a few millimetres upwards.

The shell will then come free and can be lifted off the key.

Detach the key blade by angling it up.

Return the key blade to its intended position in the remote control key after use. Refit the shell and slide it back.

A click will indicate that the shell is properly positioned and engaged.
